The interplay between electronic and biological systems is an area on intense interest. Thus, the development of neuroprosthetic devices can have high potential impact on brain research and brain-based industry and is one of the central problems to be addressed in the next decades. This talk will review and summarize the most important physiological principles regarding any neuroprosthetic approach and present a survey of the present state of developments concerning the feasibility of a visual neuroprostheses, as a means through which a limited but useful visual sense could be restored to profoundly blind people.
